Julie “Jewel” Permut, Licensed Acupuncturist
Born into to a family of healers, Jewel discovered she had the gift of healing at a young age. Inspired by the ancient wisdom traditions of the East, she trained in Japanese martial arts as a way to cultivate her own life force energy. At age 14, she earned her brown belt and placed 3rd at the Junior Olympics, and her sights were set on the Olympics. Then a major back injury sustained during training redirected her, and shifted her focus from competition, to healing.
It was through her own healing journey, that Jewel discovered her life’s work and passion. She attended The University of Vermont, graduating in 2001 with a self-designed major in Environmental Studies; which explored the intimate connection between traditional healing, consciousness, and the natural world. After graduation, she took a deep dive into the study of holistic healing arts, beginning with yoga, meditation, and energy medicine. Jewel completed a certification in Massage Therapy from the Northeastern Institute of Whole Health in 2006. In 2010, she graduated from the New England School of Acupuncture with a Masters Degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.
Jewel is a Board Certified and Licensed Acupuncturist/Herbalist, Bodyworker, Advanced Yoga Teacher, and Oneness Trainer. She also has specialized training in Arvigo(R) Maya Abdominal Massage. Jewel is passionate and wholeheartedly dedicated to the healing and awakening of humanity, with the vision of a more conscious, peaceful, and loving world. She feels honored and privileged to have been trained in some of the ancient healing arts of Asia, the Americas, and Europe.
